Tidbits and Notes. Part 273

L’elegance de la misere? Une chambre, une natte a meme le sol, des clous aux murs pour attacher des vetements, un seau d’eau pres de la porte et un balai… Les liceens qui habite ces taudis payent pour la seule lampe electrique

Nous ne sommes pas des personages, ou des characteres… nous sommes des histoires. Un paysage, une certaine lumiere, un crepuscule, un aube, une rencontre, un au revoire, un entretient, un malentendu, un moment d’amour fou… On se reconnait dans une de ses histoires qui nous decrit.

All the Israeli settlements, paid for by the USA taxpayers, would ultimately shelter the returning Palestinians to their home land, once Israel foolishly undertake another pre-emptive war.

Something has to give in Venezuela: the people will decide who is the constitutional President and the other one will be judged as traitor and executed

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” Thus, do you due diligence to shorten your comfort zones periods and have the 8 lives of a cat?

The Neo-Zionists “strategic centers” in USA are running Israel society: The are no good options for Israelis in order to vote “democratically”. Israel is pressured to keep in a state of constant war and to increase its apartheid laws

Justin Trudeau, PM of Canada: You cannot rely on world Zionism to get you out of this morass of tampering with the justice. You cannot forget the plights of Palestinians and let it believe that you are a “human rights” activist

And you start reading biographies of these old crooks (Old money) who “whitened their highway-robbery schemes” decades ago, and how their inheritors legitimately resumed the same crooked behavior:  They were elected to political offices and they finance election campaigns, and fund lobbies for special interest laws.

You feel that there are no serious institutions in Lebanon: No serious statistics about all the various refugees in Lebanon. It all depends on perspective and political short-term exigencies: Palestinian refugee numbers can oscillate between 200,000 to 500,000. Syrian refugees numbers vary from one million to 2 million: a matter of perspective and what the UN wants us to consider as accurate.

The Vatican begins a crucial summit on clergy sexual abuse, on children and on clerical “sisters”. What do you expect? if the “sisters” wash the male priests’ clothes, underwear, cook their meal, tend to their daily comfort… sooner or later she will be asked to share his bed. Allow temporary marriage contracts: old age will resolve chastity.

Many would like to hear: Hezbollah should focus more on financial abuses “fassaad” in Lebanon and much less on state of affairs in the neighboring countries. I say: the two options must go hand in hand: fassaad Loubnan min fassaad al douwal al mou7itat

Israel forced 3,000 Palestinians out of their homes in Jerusalem in 15 years, NGO

Apr 29,2019

Israeli occupation does not give building licenses to Palestinians, while pay generously to build homes for Jews.

B’Tselem, an Israeli human rights group, revealed on Sunday that Israeli occupation authorities have forced around 3,000 Palestinians from their homes in Jerusalem between 2004 and 2019.

“The Jerusalem Municipality demolished 830 residential units, and 120 more were demolished by their owners on the municipality’s orders,” explained B’Tselem in a report published on its website. “The municipality deliberately left 2,927 people homeless, 1,574 of them minors.”

The report points out that the Israeli-run municipality adopts policies which have deliberately created an acute construction crisis for the city’s Palestinian population, while Jewish neighbourhoods enjoy massive development and substantial funding.

“Israel has expropriated more than a third of the land it annexed from the West Bank and has built 11 neighbourhoods exclusively for Jews,” said B’Tselem.

It noted that these neighbourhoods are as illegal under international law as Israel’s settlements are in the occupied West Bank.

The Israeli authorities use a number of strategies to block Palestinian use of the land. According to the human rights report, they either declare Palestinian-owned land as “open scenic areas”, where development is forbidden, or as national parks, where construction and urban development are almost entirely forbidden.

In other parts of the occupied Palestinian territories, large areas, including towns and villages, are declared to be “military zones” almost as a matter of routine, and residents have to leave their homes for set periods when the army moves in.

The Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem “have no choice” but to build without permits because the Israeli municipality rarely grants the right to build or extend homes.

Israeli occupation estimates that between 15,000 and 20,000 Arab homes have been built or extended without planning permission in the past five years.

“Thousands of Palestinians in the city are living under constant threat to their homes and businesses; in many cases, the authorities follow through on this threat or force residents to demolish the structures themselves,” said B’Tselem.

It added: “Israel does not see the residents of East Jerusalem [the Palestinians] as human beings with equal rights, but as people it strives to remove from their homes, as they are an obstacle to Judaising the city.”

The measures adopted by Israel to achieve that end, added the respected human rights group, are all illegal.

According to the Israeli NGO, the Israeli occupation “deliberately denying Palestinians construction permits for residential and other purposes, issuing demolition orders for structures built without a permit for lack of choice, and demolishing dozens of such structures a year.”

Israel, concluded B’Tselem, has implemented this policy, designed to clear parts of the city of Palestinians, since occupying the West Bank and annexing East Jerusalem and the surrounding villages [in 1967].
